Oliver's Battery Primary and Nursery School

Creative, Caring, Confident Learners for Life

"Pupils like attending this school because everyone is so caring" - Ofsted, October 2019

Year 4

During the next few weeks it would be great if your child/ren could continue with their learning at home. The children have got their Home Learning Activities already at home, and could definitely get on with completing the variety of tasks.

The children could practise their times tables on Times Tables Rockstars. The login is your child's first name and password is rockstar

Other websites for Maths practise are:

Weekly spellings are linked below. Your child will know if they are Year 4, Set 3 (Year 3 word list) or mixed group.

Another great resource to look at is online, called Pobble365. Everyday a new image and text extract to accompany it is produced with story starter ideas, sentence challenges and question time about the extract. This is a really good way to inspire the children to do some writing. Also continue to read with your child and discuss the characters, setting, plot, change the ending of the story and use a dictionary to find the meaning of difficult words e.t.c Further still, create a comic strip of the story and add speech or make up a different ending to the story.

Other great websites are Twinkle Education and White Rose Hub which is offering free online resources to support children with English, maths and topic work.
